The alien antics conclude on the season finale of "The Neighbors" (8:30 p.m., ABC, TV-PG). Having

recently attended a Broadway show, the gang takes the next logical step for ultimate tourists: a trip to Atlantic City. Frivolity comes to an abrupt end when they receive a call from their home planet. Is it time to return to Zab-

vron? That appears to be up to ABC programmers, who have yet to renew or cancel this series. Look for George Takei and Mark Hamill as familiar faces from home.

---Speaking of sitcoms with uncertain futures, "Whitney" (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., NBC, TV-14) also ends its season tonight. In the season finale, Whitney catches her therapist doing something deeply disturbing and begins to question her professionalism.

---An old-fashioned soap opera in all the worst ways, the Canadian series "Bomb Girls" (8 p.m. and 9 p.m., Reelz, TV-PG) enters its second season. Set in a munitions factory during World War II, "Girls" features overlapping stories of high drama, including women worried about their men at the front, an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, a secretive lesbian

worried about exposure and blackmail and a rich heiress "doing her part" for the war effort.

The stories might work if the dialogue wasn't so jaw-dropping and obvious and if "Girls" wasn't staged as a series of musical fashion shoots interrupted by campy melodrama. Look for Meg Tilly in a starring role as a mother figure in more ways than one. "Girls" is best ap-

preciated as a hoot -- a stylish period piece misfire.

---The satirical IFC sketch show "Portlandia" stamped the city of Portland, Ore., with an attitude. Now, "The Real World" (10 p.m., MTV, TV-14), the great-granddaddy of all reality television, moves to Portland to partake in the city's particular ambiance. MTV promises near-immediate romances; heated, jumping-on-the-couch arguments; psychological warfare; and a dog named Daisy. So it really doesn't matter if things get "real" in Portland or Sheboygan, Wis. Help yourself.
